What could be more exciting than discovering a garden? A garden within a garden to ponder?
Gardens have always influenced artists and inspired us to be creative in our own expressions of creating space to grow food or a place just to rest in a leafy retreat.
(Cabbage by artist Rod Weagant.)
In the early part of this century the garden was where settlers found eighty percent of their food, medicine, aromatic herbs and dyes. While in today’s gardens we still share a number of the same characteristics of need and desire, we look for more design and featured focal points.
The Confluence Gallery show DIG IT: A place where art and gardens come together provides an opportunity for artists to share their garden and nature inspired art with gallery visitors. Whether your space is large or small, you’ll find paintings and art for the garden of metal, glass, ceramic, woodwork and more.
